  • Asalaam alaykum There has been some information that I think you should research about Johnson & Johnson baby powder stating that the ingredient talc has been linked to ovarian cancer and cervical cancer there has been class action lawsuits filed due to women who have either died or have been diagnosed with this I don't know the whole situation about this product but this is very important because you have on the website that it is halal but there is no information about alcohol in the ingredients. I wanted to know is talc in powder products halal? And if so what makes it halal? And if it isn't what makes it haram? Thank you so much Asalaam alaykum WA Ramatullahi WA barakatuhu - peace1
  • AOA

    Thank you for your suggestion. I do not have time or resources to do further research if a ingredients cost cancer. But whenever I wrote some times it is toxic if a ingredients is toxic.
